.s. as children. seeking refugee status. they thrived attending top boston schools. older brother, tamerlan, 26, star athlete, golden glove boxer, pianist. younger brother dzhokhar, 19, had just become a u.s. citizen, ironically, on september 11th of last year. once a lifeguard, he was an all-state wrestler and college student. >> i certainly can't put it together that he was a person firing a weapon and potentially killing people. >> reporter: last night the fbi acknowledged it interviewed tamerlan in 2011 based on a tip from the russians. the russians said he was a radical islamist, preparing to leave the u.s., possibly for a trip to the caucuses. after looking into tamerlan's phone records, websites he visited and associates, the fbi found no ties to terrorists. by law, fbi officials said, monitoring had to stop, barring new negative information. >> too many people in this country, just like him, that are touching extremist websites, that are espousing things that aren't particularly kind to americans, but that's not against the law here. >> reporter: tamerlan's father said his sons couldn't

muslims more than it does. that's going to take it up discussion. we learned today tamerlan was kicked off a mosque because being too radical. what peter king will do with that information, based on experience, say that's proof we need to more closely monitor people in this country. i'm not sure you need to go that far. this is somebody who was in a citizenship cue and had that process delayed because of going back and forth to russia. it might have been a specific case we missed and not something to look at as it expands ever more the investigation of muslims in general. something the system should have captured but we will discuss broad solutions, broad ideas not just republicans but national security hawks wanted whatever the situation is. >> we'll leave it there. go ahead, lynn. jump in. >> a quick point. this comes as the immigration bill is being kbeebt edebated i senate. >> we'll talk about that later in the broadcast. thanks to you all. appreciate your time. >>> the fbi again, interviews, in e did not find any terrorist links to him. how did that happen? i'll ask a senior member of
